Remembering training at BGH. You were always so pleasant to everyone. I know you will be greatly missed by many, many people. You are in a better place now - hopefully many of us will join you. Love, Jackie

I remember Rose as one whom I grew up with. Margie, Joan and Rose. Either Homestead Street or Dooker's Hollow was another home. I was always "Georgie" to Rose. Later on in San Diego, she fooled me into getting swept over by the surf. I woke up in her apartment once with a cat sitting on me and starring me in the face. More later I used to surprise Rose and Bill by walking up to the boat when they did not know I was coming. Great person. Great heart. She lives on in our memories, along with the yellow VW bug. Our condolences on your loss and our loss too. George and Helen Kambic

So sorry to hear of Rosemaries's passing. I remember her friendly way with her younger cousins, and how my mom enjoy seeing her in later years. Rest In Peace. Matt Kambic, New Zealand.
